Journal of Tibial Pilon Fractures Case Reports

Journal of Tibial Pilon Fractures Case Reports publishes case reports in Tibial Pilon Fractures journal, surgery in Tibial Pilon Fractures journal, images in Tibial Pilon Fractures journal, research in Tibial Pilon Fractures journal etc. Tibial pilon fractures are relatively infrequent, accounting for 5–7% of all fractures of tibia. These fractures are caused by axial loading in which the talus is driven into the plafond, resulting in articular impaction of the distal tibia. The position of the foot at the time of impact, in conjunction with the direction and amplitude of the force, results in varying fracture patterns and amount of comminution. Intra-articular distal tibia fractures can also occur from a rotational force with minimal axial load. These fractures are often low energy and therefore cause less insult to the soft tissues and less comminution and should not be considered equal to a true pilon.
